Maiolaine Bourgeois Coffee Maker January 22, 2019 08:55:13
The French press coffee maker was created in the 1930`s. This sort of coffee maker is usually created quite simply but produces thick and rich coffee. Using this coffee maker usually entails filling the container with a single tablespoon of coffee that is coarsely grounded as well as hot cup of water. You should then place a plunger handle into the pot. Placing this handle in the pot aids heat retention and after doing this you should slowly depress the plunger handle as well. The mesh of the plunger will then make sure that the grounds are pushed to the bottom of the canister; this separates the grounds from the coffee. After this is done then the coffee can be served directly from the canister. Any coffee that you brew should be served immediately because most of these canisters are made of glass and they lose their heat quickly. Stainless steel press pots can be bought for better heat retention but they are usually less popular than glass canisters.
The java is brewed by placing the coffee and water together leaving to brew for a few minutes then depressing the plunger to trap the grounds at the bottom of the container. Because the grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grounds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter java brewed with the French press captures more of the brews flavor and essential oils most of these are generally trapped in the paper or wire filters we use in the drip method of brewing. Because the used grounds remain in the drink after brewing French pressed coffee should be served immediately so as to not become bitter. A typical 8-cup French press is considered expired after 20 - 25 minutes as there is no warmer plate as in many makers.
